After a day of Whakapapa skiing or hiking, you can soak up mountain views and classic 1930s atmosphere in the welcoming lounge, savouring High Tea and classic cocktails around the crackling fire.
A variety of accommodation with National Park views ranges from spacious Family Rooms to Executive Spa Suites, all with tasteful furnishings and decor that reflects the hotel’s notable history. The convenient, self-catering Fergusson Motel units put you in the heart of Whakapapa Village, where you can mingle with locals at the more casual eateries and Whakapapa bars while still having access to all the hotel services and facilities during your stay.
Within the main hotel, the Ruapehu Room serves classic New Zealand cuisine such as lamb, seafood and a delicious signature chateaubriand for two, while a lavish breakfast buffet sets you up for the day. A few minutes’ drive from the front door, you can hike the Tongariro Alpine Crossing or hit the slopes at the Whakapapa and Turoa ski areas. When it’s warmer, get ready for some trout fishing, mountain biking or river rafting.
Guests may be tempted to spend all their time at the hotel, with its rugged natural 9-hole golf course, fitness room, lounge billiards, and the many relaxing spaces to read a book or catch up with friends. You can even try your hand at Petanque in the garden of Fergusson’s Café, just 50 metres away. If you’re the outdoor type, after a thrilling day exploring the forests and mountains you’ll welcome some relaxation at the inviting plunge pool and sauna.
